Timi Dakolo And Wife Narrowly Escaped Death!
Timi Dakolo, along with his wife Busola, escaped death in the helicopter crash which claimed the life of the Kaduna State Governor Patrick Yakowa, former national security adviser Andrew Owoeye Azazi, and others in the evening of Saturday, December 15, 2012.
Timi Dakolo and his wife attended the burial ceremony of the father of Oronto Douglas, President Goodluck Jonathan’s Special Adviser on Research and Documentation.
Dakolo, who is expected to perform at the closing ceremony of the Rivers State Carnival , was meant to fly along with the governor and five others but opted out, deciding at the last minute to travel by road.
‘Timi is doing okay, he was meant to fly on that chopper but he didn’t. I just got off the phone with him’, Tony ‘Don T’ Anifite, an executive for Now Muzik, Dakolo’s management team tells NET.
Dakolo, aware he narrowly escaped death, later took to micro-blogging site Twitter to douse the fears and give thanks to God. ‘God saved me’ he tweeted.
